I think Athearn did those in HO. From what I remember they originally came with those 6 wheel trucks, but later switched over to span-bolsters.

Wow Chris , thats a great shop flat . I may slice up a normal flat some day and do that , but not now . Besides Rossie O'Donnell there are many short and heavy things for its use .
